Watch the Mary Queen of Scots Trailer Starring Saoirse Ronan

Following yesterday's first look at Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan as Elizabeth I and Mary Stuart, respectively, in the period drama Mary Queen of Scots, we now have the first trailer.

This gives us the enormous pleasure to show off the highly-anticipated trailer, featuring two female protagonists - passing the often-disregarded Bechdel Test with flying colours. The producers of Mary, Queen of Scots are Working Title co-chairs Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, and Debra Hayward, all Academy Award nominees as producers of Best Picture Oscar nominee Les Misérables. Beau Willimon adapted the screenplay based on John Guy's biography "Queen of Scots: The True Life of Mary Stuart". She was Queen of France at 16 and then widowed at 18, deciding to return home to Scotland without a husband, where she has to carefully compete with her sister - Queen Elizabeth I of England, ruling over Scotland and England at the time. But she comes up against Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie), who rules over both England and Scotland, and the two fiercely independent women in a male-dominated world engage in a battle for the throne.

Both now must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence.

Mary, Queen of Scots is set for release on December 7, 2018. Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth's sovereignty. Be sure to check out the first Mary Queen of Scots trailer, courtesy of the Focus Features YouTube channel, for yourself below. The cast is rounded out by the likes of David Tennant, Gemma Chan, Guy Pearce, and Martin Compston. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones - and change the course of history.

Amid her attempted coup, Mary, Queen of Scots is sentenced to multiple years in prison and, eventually, execution. The film also marks the directorial debut of theatre director Josie Rourke.
